Feh, any man that gets that worked up over semantics must have other, more pressing issues...

"He was calling me dude and laughing about it," Olivares said. "I don't think Kern County needs that kind of leadership."
I don't think Kern County needs a mayor driving with an open container of beer either, it's funny how he forgets about that.... Don't drink and drive, and I won't call you names. Got that, dude?

The Mayor could have had a sense of humour about it like this:

Cop: Dude! You got a tattoo!
Mayor: So do you, dude! Dude, what does my tattoo say?
Cop: "Sweet!" What about mine?
Mayor: "Dude!" What does mine say?
Cop: "Sweet!" What about mine?
Mayor: "Dude!" What does mine say?
Cop: "Sweet!" What about mine?
Mayor: "Dude!" What does mine say?
Cop: "Sweet!" What about mine?
Mayor: "Dude!" What does mine say?
Cop: "Sweet!" What about mine?
Mayor: "Dude!" What does mine say?
Cop: "Sweet!" What about mine?
[later]
Mayor: [angry] "Dude!" What does mine say?
Cop: [screaming] "Sweet!"

Quote: I'm not a dude. I'm 41 years old, I'm a businessman, I'm a Christian and I consider myself a gentleman

So if you are a businessman, christian, or a gentleman you can't be a dude???


from a dictionary:

dude
n : a man who is much concerned with his dress and appearance
[syn: dandy, fop, gallant, sheik, beau, swell,
fashion plate, clotheshorse]


Source: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

Dude \Dude\, n.
A kind of dandy; especially, one characterized by an
ultrafashionable style of dress and other affectations.

I don't think any of these things are at odds with being a businessman, christian, or gentleman. What does this guy think a dude is anyway????

The Councilwoman had the beer, not the Mayor.

IMHO-the officer SHOULD have shown some respect-"Sir" instead of dude would have been appropriate.

But trying to have an officer fired for it-that is being childish.

Maybe the occifer was using this definition of the word:

2 : a city dweller unfamiliar with life on the range; especially : an Easterner in the West

Seems to me that the deputy in question wanted some fun at Oliveres' expense.

Olivares is mayor of Arvin, a city of 20,000 in Kern County, about 20 miles south of Bakersfield.
He's definitely NOT an easterner-and it really shouldn't matter-even if the deputy knew he stopped the Mayor of Arvin. The guy's not disputing the charges-he's just asking what any of us would ask for.

How would you feel if you were stopped in your local area and a deputy started doing something similar and showing a general lack of respect?

JMO-I always show respect towards an officer, even when I feel the stop is for something really stupid-I generally get the same respect back, and in most cases have gotten away with a warning-only time it didn't is when the officer had me cold for 90 in a 55-first ticket in 25 years.
